The "Regular Pioneer" title has now become a total joke

    Never belived in announcing things. Felt less rewars. This bible verse is very true.

    Matthew 6:4 so that your giving may be in secret. And your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you.

    Do you suppose that having a high number of "regular pioneers" on the books might somehow help with their charitable status? Claiming they have X amount of "full time ministers/volunteers" actively participating in their so called charitable activities might make them eligible for certain governmental provisions/funds/grants etc.

    When it comes to impressing their more gullible members, it would most certainly give them bragging rights when it came time to report the great increase as evidence of Jehovah's obvious blessings. "So encouraging".

    Remember temporary pioneer, vacation pioneer, regular pioneer, special pioneer, pioneer for a day, over 40 years in and proud to say I never did any of it.

    Did pioneers get cheaper meal tickets at conventions too at some point?

    sbf: yes, free meal tickets for full time "servants". meals were a great fundraiser, basically financed the circuit overseer's car for the 4 month interval. imagine the operation for 250 000 in 1958, yankee stadium and Polo Grounds, NY city. .

    The question productive are JW Pioneers who put in all these many hours in the ministry at recruiting new converts? The answer is...Zero...0...nada...zilch!

    I'm affiliated with a circuit that boasts some 400 to 500 Regular and Auxiliary Pioneers. For the past 5+ years the only ones getting baptized are born-in tiny bopper 'yang wans'!

    Remember when pioneering was 130 hours for men and 120 for women (10h because they have periods).

    It has indeed become a joke, the light that shines brighter must be so blindingly obvious to the world they can take it easy now.

    Don't worry about anything. When you pioneer, you don't have a worry in the world. Jehovah will take care of all your wants and needs. Your bills will be paid and you will always be healthy.

    What a fuc---g joke!
